the lives of several of his students. authorities are praising the instructor's actions. he tackled a man who barged into the classroom, shooting the instructor in the head with a hunting bow. more startling, the attacker was the professor's own son, according to police. the gruesome scene played out friday casper college. the local police chief explains what happened. >> the suspect stepped into the classroom where professor klumme was ready to begin the day, faired one arrow and struck the photographer in the head. the professor got up and even though mortally wounded he fought the suspect off. the students in the room were all able to escape during this altercation because of the courage of the professor. >> police say that before attacking james krumme, his 25-year-old son, christopher, are fatally stabbed his dad's girlfriend at the couple's home. he allegedly stabbed his father to death before turning it on himself and dying of a self-infli self-inflicted knife wound. >>> well, she has flown all over the world but now hillary clinton is hanging up her diplomatic wings. just who will
chemical weapons against their own people. but suffice to say, we are certainly planning to take action, if that eventuality were to occur. >> a promise of action, but, again, no specifics. so, what would a military intervention look like? >> if your objective is to destroy the chemical munitions, then perhaps you can go in and bomb them or otherwise sabotage them. if your goal is to secure them and remove them so they don't fall into the hands of others and that requires boots on the ground, then that would require all sorts of logistical planning and a pretty major effort, in part because, remember, military planners have to plan for the worse case. so, even if you spend a small group of people in, they have to have backup and a way out and all sorts of things that have to be planned for. if you plan for the contingencies the number of trips increases and increases. that is a roeally nasty problem to destroy or remove chemical weapons in the middle of a civil war against a country that has a military that is going to fight back. >> then there's also the danger of an unplanned chemical
meaningful action and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away. the media calls semiautomatic firearms machine guns. they claim these civilian semiautomatic firearms are used by the military. they tell us that the 223 round is one of the most powerful rifle calibers when all of these claims are factually untrue. they don't know what they're talking about. worse, they perpetuate the dangerous notion that one more gun ban or one more law imposed on peaceable, lawful people will protect us where 20,000 other laws have failed. as brave and heroic and as self-sacrificing as those teachers were in those classrooms and as prompt and professional and well-trained as those police were when they responded, they were unable, through no fault of their own, unable to stop it. as parents we do everything we can to keep our children safe. it's now time for us to assume responsibility for our schools. the only way, the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. the only thing that stops a bad guy w
own. we have to come together, and we're going to have to take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this from happening regardless of politics. >> in that aurora theater last july a gunman wielding a semi-automatic rifle with a 100-barrel magazine, a shotgun and pistol went on a rampage killing 12 and wounding 58. shortly afterwards colorado's governor said stricter gun laws would not have helped. >> if there were no assault weapons available, if there were no this or that, this guy is going to find something and know how to create a bomb. >> he seemed different in an interview last wednesday, two full days before the events here in connecticut. when you look at what happened in aurora, the governor said, a great deal of that damage was from the large magazine on the ar-15 rifle. i think we need to have that discussion and say, where is this appropriate? joining any now is the governor of colorado, john hickenlooper. thank you for joining us today. i think that things are so fresh here in connecticut, but you have been dealing for several months with the aftermath of

as a country and help them take action. and all they're asking for is rationality. how many among us would say it is okay to have 100 rounds of clips in a banana, that is just not rationale, they're talking about people with the opportunity to take away massive, massive amounts of loss. and i think reasonable people will say that is something we can get behind. and thank you, president obama for being clear you are going to take action and you need our help. but it is not just about the guns. i tell you, on my program, we're getting deep with what to do about people and family members, people with mental illness that are out of control. there is woeful resources in our country, people cannot get conservativeship. there is no state hospital or structure. and i would say president obama please, please, there is so much more to be done here than just guns. and this is our opportunity, and connecticut is just a symptom. >> and the president made it clear, he agrees with you. it is not just guns that are an issue, even though he did say you have to deal with military type assault weapons, high-capa
called for, quote, a meaningful action to prevent similar tragedy dpips didn't spell out, though, what should be done. i asked the connecticut senator, richard bloomenthal earlier today, what he expects to happen. >> we're going to go back to washington, the united states, new federal legislation needed to tighten up gun control in the united states? >> you know, wolf, that is a conversation i am going to have with my colleagues. today i'm not going to discuss it out of respect to the families. and i'm going to be back again tomorrow. but i'm going to go to washington and i'm going to raise this issue, and i think it's time for the conversation to be renewed. for the dialogue to begin again, and for the senate to consider whether that is necessary. >> let's bring in our white house correspondent briann brianna keilar. what do you see? >> president obama will be headed to newtown to speak at an interfaith vigil. he will be offering his condolences, no doubt striking a tone of uniyuan but not talking about what he sees as the solutions to avert something like this. the white house feels
take action. that his administration in the coming weeks and months would be looking at ways to prevent something like this from happening again. so this is the first visible action that this administration has taken to -- is taking, rather, to meet that demand. >> all right. the president will speak, we expect, in just about 2 1/2 hours. when the president speaks, of course, cnn will take it live. thank you, dan. >>> the national rifle association is vowing to take part in the national dialogue on gun control. and says it's heartbroken and shocked by the massacre. it's worth noting the gun rights group seems to be embracing a softer tone in assigning blame for the gunman's killing spree. >> i don't think the issue is an issue. i don't think the issue is parenting or hollywood or guns or rap music or young man. it is the foundational stuff. whether it's a lack of love, a lack of empathy for others, apathy. >> that from the nra's website. in its first statement since the killings the nra has this to say. quote, out of respect for the families and as a matter of common decency we have giv
at the earliest, that would be on friday. but, you know, the action really is now going to begin in the senate. there isn't that much of a rush for the house to come back. and when i say action, even that is a question mark. whether there will be action. i was talking to a democratic source who said right now what they had to figure out, victor, is whether or not harry reid working with the white house on this can get enough votes from republicans to cross party lines for even a scaled back measure, which the president laid out in general on friday, would just be to keep americans' taxes where they are for those making $250,000 or less. and to do a couple of other things, unemployment benefits, maybe, maybe extend the estate tax cut, which is -- which is also going to run out, but, again, they're not even -- the senator won't even consider doing this, i'm told, unless he's sure they'll get through the senate and the house because politically they don't think there is any reason for congress to take votes that are just going to fail. also, they that i it will be bad for the markets, even worse
meaningful action to prevent future tragedies. opponents of gun control in congress, maintain that americans have a right to bear arms. but supporters of gun rights question the right to own certain types of guns. >> these are assault weapons. you don't hunt deer with these types of things. i think that's the question that a lot of people have to resolve in their own minds. where should this line get drawn? >> a free people should be an armed people. it ensures against the tyranny of the government, if they know that the biggest army is the american people. >> a number of gun control measures have been introduced in congress over the past few years. but not a single one has made it to the floor for a vote. senator dianne feinstein of california says she plans to introduce a bill next month that places a ban on assault weapons. >> today is the first day students across the country return to school since the massacre in connecticut. and from coast-to-coast, school districts are expected to review their security plans to satisfy anxious parents, students, teachers. i was receiving memos from my
